RidER Rescue Kit

Comments Comments

Having first-aid equipment immediately on hand can make a huge difference in an emergency, yet few mountain bikers actually carry anything with them. The RidER Rescue first-aid kit is designed by a cyclist and former ambulance officer.

 

It includes a huge range of quality products, designed to be of benefit in a variety of different medical situations. Items include saline, wound dressings, shock blanket, antiseptic wipes, burns sachets, triangular bandage, band-aids and more.

While RidER Rescue has everything you’re likely to need, it also folds up into reasonably portable self-contained package. Built in velcro tabs allow the bag to be mounted under the saddle or even under the handlebars if you're running a moderate stem length (there won't be sufficient room if you're running a stubby #enduro style handlebar stem). Alternately, it's compact enough to fit into your average trail hydration pack, so there's no excuse not to take it. The RidER Rescue pack sells for $69 and is available from www.safetystoreaustralia.com.au

In this gallery we take a look at the team cars of all 22 teams competing in the 2017 Tour de France.

A fast and furious stage at le Tour, crashes came early with German sprint sensation Marcel Kittel one of the casualties. Kittel later abandoned, not before Matthews won the sprint to edge to within 10 points of Kittel’s ultimately futile total.
